Out of this world

A while back I was with Isaac at the park.  He was playing with a couple of older girls.  I noticed that there seemed to be some contentious words exchanged.  I went closer to observe.  I overheard one of the girls calling Isaac the a-word.  This is the time to mention that I am overprotective.  I took a handful of sand and chucked it at the offender.  OK, not really.  But it made me so mad that I had to leave lest I do something really stupid to an eight-year old.  An act that would be oh so much worse than her calling my five-year old an a--.  Actually, my first instinct was to completely cuss her out.  Which tells me that my instincts are not to be trusted.  Can you imagine what a stupid example it would have been?  A grown man yelling at a little girl.

Well, in his six months of kindergarten, Isaac has learned to fend for himself.  I was with him at a playplace in AZ.  There was a boy there that was acting pretty aggressive towards Isaac.  He was screaming and invading Isaac's space.  Isaac seemed like he was just going to let the boy misbehave.  

About a minute later I noticed that Isaac and the boy were in a secluded room in the playplace.  I was directly under him, and he was unaware that I could hear him.  

Isaac said to the boy in a quiet calm voice the following, "Does it scare you that I am an alien, that you do not know what planet I am from.  You don't know what I look like or what I can do."  

He paused for a second, I imagine for emphasis, then walked out of the room and went on his merry way.

I have no idea where he picked up the idea of aliens that disguise themselves as people, but, to be honest, I slept a little bit worse that night sharing a hotel room with an admitted alien.
